CORONAVIRUS cases in two Test Valley areas are rising, new figures have revealed.

An interactive map, which uses Public Health England data, shows how many people have tested positive for the virus in each part of the borough in the week up to April 8.

The map is divided into Middle Super Output Areas (MSOAs), which are areas with an average population of 7,200.

It then colour-codes MSOAs depending on their seven-day rolling infection rate, with areas placed into the boundaries of 0-9 (yellow), 10-49 (light green), 50-99 (dark green), 100-199 (light blue), 200-399 (dark blue), 400 to 799 (light purple) and 800 plus (dark purple).

In the seven days up to April 8, Test Valley recorded 40 infections - up by three on the previous week - and had a weekly rolling rate of 31.7 cases per 100,000 people.

This means the infection rate is above average compared to the national average.

The two areas where cases are rising are Chilworth, Nursling & Rownhams and Abbotswood & West Wellow.

In the week up to April 8, Chilworth, Nursling & Rownhams documented eight cases - up by six on the previous week - and had a weekly rolling rate of 120.3 cases per 100,000 people.

Meanwhile, Abbotswood & West Wellow recorded three cases - up by one on the previous week - and had a weekly rolling rate of 35.3 cases per 100,000 people.

However, there are still ten places in Test Valley with fewer than three cases.

This means the data for these areas is suppressed to protect individuals' privacy.

The places with fewer than three cases, according to the latest data, are:

  • Romsey Cupernham & Halterworth
  • Romsey Town
  • North Baddesley & Braishfield
  • Valley Park
  • Nether Wallop, King's Somborne & Dunbridge
  • Over Wallop & Shipton Bellinger
